Solo mining is not profitable, if you use this you should have your own mini farm.

I have 15 macs, that combined only have the expectation to earn 1 block per day.   If you solo mine right now with a high end machine you should expect one block every 2 weeks.  Of course the difficulty will rise over 2 weeks and orphans are high, so solo mining is more like one block every month+. 

I just pushed a patch to gain another 10%

Switched to Boost 1.54, compiles fine.

This miner is 4x faster than the miner I was using with my pool and might be faster than ypool.   Give it a shot.  It does not work with with my mining pool as I want to support standard pools and encourage decentralization.   

We are working on a new mining pool to work with this miner.

Enjoy!

mac version  http://the-iland.net/static/downloads/mac_gw_miner.0.1.0.tar.gz
linux version: http://the-iland.net/static/downloads/linux_gw_miner.0.1.0.tar.gz
win64 version: windows: http://the-iland.net/static/downloads/windows_gw_miner.0.1.0.zip

Honestly, I'm a noob at this, but am really excited about the opportunity to be apart of this.  I need help getting this miner to run on my Mac 10.6.8 OSX.  When I open the download, it takes me to the Terminal, and I get an "Illegal instruction" error.  Can anyone help me with this?

I git pulled and recompiled, trying it out now, seems to be a bit faster.  Can you tell me though, is it usual that this miner should use such small amount of memory? It's only using about 1.5 GB of memory, can i increase this amount? will increasing it add any benefit to mining speed?

Increasing memory will hurt performance, due to increased cache misses.

Do you have an old 32 bit mac?  These are 64 bit only.

Hi,
Thanks for the update and the great work. Would you mind giving some basic guidelines how to build your miner for windows.

Weird, i thought that protoshares were supposed to be very memory heavy.  Will the 1.5 GB requirement increase as the difficulty goes up?  What would be the most ideal setup for mining protoshares then? What is more important fast RAM or RAM timings? Is a large CPU Cache important?

Thanks!

Just curious. Anyone solo mining with this miner have managed to mined a block yet?
the same question, anyone got a block with this miner?

May I have a new patched Linux binary please?

Trying hard to compile from source and now I am stuck with Boost 1.54 installation...

I am using Ubuntu 13.10 x64.

We targeted 1 GB of memory to do the proof of work and to limit the amount of parallelism that you could employ with that 1 GB.   Unless you have more than 8 cores, that is all the memory required.   If you have 32 cores, then you will need 4 GB of memory.   So it scales with CPU, but adding more memory in itself does not help beyond a certain point.

Can you publish updated Windows version?

It is very difficult to compile from the sources.
Can someone write step by step instructions for Ubuntu(12 or 13)?

Can you explain how to compile your miner? THANK YOU

I've tried for solo mine.
I'm managed to go through connection problems, but have a few nodes with dual Xeon 2450L (32 threads total) and I have a very low CPU usage - between 25 and 60%
I suppose the miner is not optimized for such CPU count, can anything be done on this?
